12:15 pm
17 in boston right now. 18 in norwood. 15 in worcester. like a heat wave compared to yesterday. and we will continue that slow up-tick. close to the upper 20's by the time we hit 9:00 p.m. tonight. and then past freezing in the wee hours of tomorrow morning. those temperatures keep rising. as we move into tomorrow and into the 50's. hard to believe that we are making that much of a jump. but here we go. frigid start for today. but then we do see some snow working in this afternoon. and this evening. it is a little bit of snow at the on-set of the system. which eventually, will be a temperatures. into the cold air that is already in place. and that's when you get that first part of the storm system bringing some snow showers in already seeing that in the western part of the state. winter weather advisory goes into effect 4:00 p.m. through the wee hours of tomorrow morning. not necessarily for the snow accumulation. but more so for the slick spots that could develop due to some sleet and also some freezing rain. it is not a lot of snow that
12:16 pm
not breaking out the shovels or plows for this one. anything we do pick up will eventually melt and wash away with all of this rain. you can see that warm front stretching through here. and then bringing through possibly even some rumbles of thunder as we get into tomorrow afternoon. and evening. so running through a very closer look of this timeline here, temperatures mid to upper 20's. by the time we hit 10:00 p.m., either side of midnight, that some freezing rain and sleet. because of the warm a littlier wedgeds if in the middle of the atmosphere. it isn't until torm that that rain really picks up. we are talking an inch to an inch and a half of wet, wet weather. and wind-swept rain at. that for more on this, danielle gersh. >> danielle: thank you, bri. it is hard to believe the air won't be cold enough to support snow. but again, we are talking about freezing rain. so we have warm air sandwiched in between the two layers of cold air. our snowflake melts as it moves through the warm air. then it freezes again when it connects at the surface.
12:17 pm
so not only are we dealing with the freezing rain and the about. also the very strong winds. goes into effect for much of the area. this is for tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow evening. we could see isolated wind gus hour. we are seeing these winds start to pick up when our temperatures warm up, too. as we head into tomorrow, 4:00 p.m. look at these winds out of the southeast. gusting from upper 30's to 40's. even 50 miles per hour. staying this way through dinnertime tomorrow. then these winds not dying down until we head into the overnight hours heading into wednesday. so bri, this storm has everything with it. huh? >> bri: sure is, danielle. wind-swept rain. first dealing with the snow. breaking it down on the time line for you. a coating to two inches. basically, generally speaking, 6:00 to 11:00 p.m.ment either side of midnight, sleet, freezing rain, and wind-driven rain as we head into tomorrow afternoon and evening. this is a lot of rain. as i mentioned before. an inch to an inch and a half. with localized downpours
12:18 pm
that. snow mix to rain tonight. temps rise. in the afternoon, low to mid-50's. honestly. i can't believe it myself. roller-coaster temperature ride. as we head throughout this entire week. at least we are either at average or just above. maybe some light snow showers expected on thursday. but no real big significant storms in the next 7-10 days. >> kris: how often do you see a 50-degree swing? that is wild. >> sarah: still ahead on 7 news, subway drivers have reportedly started noticing something with their schedules. >> kris: elliott spitzer in hot water.

12:44 pm
we didn't have the winds with us. that is still the case right now. air temperatures in the teens. and that is about what it feels like as well. with light winds coming out of the southwest. this is going to help to usher in some milder air, slowly but surely. the best we could do is 11 degrees yesterday. we could make it to the mid to possibly upper 20's later in the day. tomorrow, not even a typo. low to mid-50's. we are also looking for a wind-swept rain. here is our system already bringing some light snow showers into worcester county. just some flurries at this point. the reports that i'm seeing. but it is a big one. it lasts not only for tonight into the evening hours overnight. but also tomorrow, we could have some rumbles of thunder.

coming into the picture. now, here is the big picture. warm front coming through. colliding that precipitation already in place. the ground is so cold that any snow that falls will quickly start to accumulate. a fast one to two inches not out of the question. look at. that a nice band of rain that really moves through. an inch to an inch and a half of rainfall expected tomorrow as those temperatures are in the 50's. how much snow are we expecting. a coating to an inch inside of 128 to the south. one to two inches in worcester county. it is not a lot. it will melt off and wash away as we get into tomorrow. look at this temperature profile. two hours either side of midnight. that concern is there for freezing rain and also for some sleet. you see that wintry mix that's indicated with the pink color there. then we wait, really until tomorrow afternoon to see that heavy rain enter into the picture. looks like it takes until about 6:00, 7:00, 8:00 tomorrow. but again, inch to an inch and a half of rain. that is not all we are talking about.
12:46 pm
about wind. >> danielle: thanks, bri. and the freezing rain, too. temperatures we have had. that we don't have air cold enough the support snow. we are going to deal with the freezing rain as we head into tomorrow. we have that because we have this layer of warm air sandwiched in between the two layers of cold air. our snowflake melts and then it freezes again upon contact. as our temperatures warm up, we are going to be dealing with this wind also. because of that, we have a high wind watch. this is for tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow evening. we could see isolated gusts in these areas. and this orange area. getting up to 60 miles per hour. the winds are going to be really strong. here is the wind timeline. you can see they are starting to pick up really. tomorrow at 4:30, they are out of the south. and out of the southwest. they are getting anywhere from 40-50 miles per hour out on the cape here. these gusts getting up to 60 miles per hour. especially as we head into dinnertime tomorrow. they are not dying down until the overnight hours as we head into wednesday.
12:47 pm
everything with this. >> bri: yeah. a multi-faceted storm, for sure. a timeline for you once again. akoving to two inches of snow. 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. we could see some pockets of light snow showers past 11:00. that is really the prime of. that sleet, freezing rain, either side of mid might into 2:00, 3:00 a.m. then wind-driven rain we are in for more like a spring rainstorm. an inch to even an inch and a half with some localized downpours. we are also talking about that snow melting off as well. so poor drainage areas could see some puddling and isolated areas of flooding. snow mixed to rain tonight. a coating to two inches not out of the question. we won't be breaking out the shovels or plows. and then tomorrow, those temperatures just incredible. still hard for me to even believe. 50-55. after what we have dealt with this weekend, we deserve it. we can thaw out a little bit. throughout the next 7-10 days, no big storms in sight. temperatures tend to stay
